Here's where to discuss world information. Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Post them on this board.

Otherwise, feel free to post new topics for questions and such.

Rules of Development
  1. Keep in mind that this world may be published in one way or another. I encourage you not to integrate any concepts of a story or RPG world that you are creating and intend to publish independent of Aserra.
  2. Any ideas you use must be original, as if I publish this game, I would not like to get slapped with copyright infringement suit for a rip-off I didn't catch.
  3. Do not model any nations or cultures entirely after existing nations and cultures in the real world. You may use aspects of any existing cultures, though, and it would be best to mix things up too.
  4. There is a need to be reasonable with cultures, abilities, and the like that are created for Aserra. I don't want nations that are the epitome of perfection, or an entirely unreasonable set of abilities that causes them to be sensationally over powered compared to others of their race.
  5. I must give approval for anything major created by other players, so until I tell you that I'm ok with that, don't automatically assume that it'll be canon.

I didn't want to use actual werewolves originally, but I think they could be an option. They will be the result of a curse, not a race. It'll follow some of the typical werewolf myths--victims of the curse shift under the full moon (Nirya in this case) and turn into a bloodthirsty monster. Anyone bitten by a werewolf (and survives) will fall under the curse. They may have typical werewolf weaknesses to silver and wolf's bane, or something else.

For the history, I think that perhaps an entire village was cursed by a cabal of cursers. The curse spread from there, and for generations exorcists have been trying to break the curse, but it's proven to be very complicated.

So, throw in some ideas or werewolf mythos to work with.

They probably shouldn't have hunted those rare silver wolves that were that minor goddess's favorite. I mean, they were warned with myths about the wolves being protected, but I guess no one wanted to listen. Now that they have hunted the silver wolves to extinction, they will become the goddess's sword, and with their fangs and claws, take vengeance in her name. Et cetera.
